I played golf on New Year’s Eve with a former Army intelligence officer. We were stacked up behind several foursomes and so we naturally passed the time by bull shitting. I was rewarded with one of the best conversations of the year. His work in the intelligence field was truly fascinating – especially how they discovered
had nuclear weapons. Eventually we started talking politics. My fellow competitor was careful to mention he was a registered Republican. I quickly confessed that I was a registered Democrat. From that moment on we had the best give and take conversation about what needs to be done to solve our country’s problems. Pakistan
We both agreed that the election procedure is crazy. Our politicians spend all their time getting elected. We decided to make the presidential primary election season last only two months. Every candidate would get free TV advertising, but it would be on C-SPAN. We would also have a national primary election day at the end of the two month. On other subjects we agreed to end the war in
immediately, solved the budget problem with both spending cuts and tax increases and created jobs by repairing our infrastructure. And this was all accomplished in the last five holes of play. Just think what we could have done if we had decided to play another nine. It was really refreshing to see there are still some moderate Republicans left. Afghanistan
When I am King, that Army intelligence officer is going to be my Vice-King. Were going to send the government on a two month vacation and when they get back all major problems will be solved. Of course, we’ll accomplish this while playing more golf.
